CBC: Workplace bullying at Wal Mart

Wednesday, June 18th, 2014

Canadian TV on the CBC show The National investigated workplace bullying by telling the tale of one brave woman’s Wal Mart case. Key points made — employers ignore bullying and ignore evidence when presented by bullied targets and choose to not resolve it until pushed by lawsuits and the difficulty of proving intentional infliction of emotional distress. Also noteworthy is that the in-depth story was 9 min. long. (Are you paying attention US TV with your shallow 2 min. segments???)

Outrageous By Any Other Name

Bullied targets are not believed. Sometimes the disbelief is rooted in the outrageousness of perpetrators and the innovative cruelty they inflict on targets. It’s hard to believe people can be so vicious.

There are three principal groups who deny bullying as it actually happens. Each group of disbelievers is discussed in separate audio tracks to make WBI Podcast 32.

Listen to all three parts in one clip: Full

Or in separate sections:
